What happens when you form a political party six months before a general election? And instantly become the hope of the nation? Mostly chaos! At least that is what 26-year-old Michiel le Roux encounters when he quits his enviable job as a banker at Absa to "make a difference". He volunteers for the Congress of the People (Cope) and becomes part of their 2009 election campaign. Uproariously funny, this warts-and-all take on Cope also offers caustic comment on the state of politics in South Africa.
